We enjoyed the walk around the town and our guide was pleasant. The stories and history was incomplete and not fully formed. This tour would be a 5 if the information was better developed. It’s still a fun thing to do but don't expect too much.

Poor! The guide Kristen was BAD! She was not properly dressed--short and flip flops at 11:00 PM--was over tied and hyped up! The Ghost tour was more of a sightseeing tour which is NOT what I paid for!

We had a very disappointing experience on this walking tour. We went on the 10:00PM tour following the dinner theater (which was a lot of fun!). We were having such a good time that we didn't want the night to end and as a result signed up for the ghost tour. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The tour guide, Kaitlyn, was... More

Our family--ages 62 to 6--loved this tour of some of the 'haunts' of Cape May. As many other reviewers have mentioned, our tour guide "Joe" made it very entertaining, including even the youngest in his presentation. He kept us laughing and informed for an hour that passed much too quickly. Spent some time before the tour at Elaine's. The staff... More

My daughters and I have enjoyed several interesting and exciting ghost tours over the years in various locations (Key West, Williamsburgh, VA). When visiting with family who rented a house in Cape May for the week, based on our previous experiences, we thought it would be fun to join this Ghost tour with them at night. (Husband, wife and two... More

Went to Cape May for a one night stay and didn't know much about the town besides the beautiful beaches. Our guide was Caitlyn (I hope I spelled it right) and she was great. Very energetic. The tour is about a half hour to 45 minutes long and gave us some fun facts about Cape May! If you are looking... More

For a tour with such potential for local history and stories, this tour fell flat on its face. The tour guide we had was a beginner alone with a group of 26 on a 2ish mile walk. We walked at a pace that stretched the group out to the point you could not hear the guide. If you could hear,... More

I recently did the Ghost Tour with Joe, and it was fabulous. He was a great guide giving not only ghost information, but also historic facts about Cape May. My friends and I really enjoyed it!
